I’m a freelance journalist specialising in the Cold War and the nuclear threat. I’m particularly interested in how we prepared for nuclear war, and am writing a popular history on that topic.

I write book reviews and features in the national press, and my work has appeared in The Times, The Economist, The Spectator, The Guardian, The TLS, Prospect, The Independent, The Herald, Sunday Herald and iNews.

I have explored nuclear sites in Britain, Hungary, Ukraine and the Czech Republic, and amĀ  planning more – where time and money permit!

I also host a weekly podcast, The Atomic Hobo, where I discuss my nuclear research and travels.
